I have been waiting for the feed stores to get the kind of chickens I want. My first chicken that my brother gave me was an Australorp. I loved that chicken. I miss Snacker! Yesterday was my lucky day. They had them! I got one Australorp, two Barred Rock, and two Lakenvelders.
Here is the brooder. I have a light for warmth, and then I keep a screen on top, both to keep other animals out, and them in.
The coop and run got a good hosing out, and cleaning yesterday too. I sure hope they will welcome their new sisters when it comes time to have them share the coop.
These 5 girls will try to do anything to get inside my garden and dig it up and eat the greens. I have to keep this make shift fence up, and even had to weave sheets and towels through the lower slats to keep them from sneaking in.
This afternoon Erika had Noah's 6th Birthday Party!!! I can't believe that he and Hannah are six! And little Clairey is 4! Where has the time gone? Noah was so excited for today. For the past several days, Erika has been running herself silly getting things ready for his party. He has been counting down the days. He had several of his class mates, and friends, and cousins come to celebrate with him.
